I always used DVDFAB Blu-ray to rip my original Blu-rays but it used to take 30 minutes tops and then, if they were too big for a BD-25 disc I would use BD REBUILDER along with FFDSHOW, MATROSKA SPLITTER and AVISYNTH to shrink(compress) the Movie to fit on the BD-25 discs, this process took several hours but great backups on compressed discs up to 30+ GB.

Now when I procees a Blu-ray such as Amazing Spiderman, it takes hours and I find it is not only analyzing, copy process started , the VIDEO REENCODE and GPU Acceleration for Video Encoding Enabled , then it shows the Source it is working with and finally, many hours later the Copy Process is finished. It now seems it has COMPRESSED the Movie to under 23 GB so it will fit on a BD-25 disc.

Is my assumption right, if so, maybe there is no need for BDREBUILDER, would that be correct?

I would appreciate any feed back on the above so I know if DVDFAB Blu-Ray is now doing more than it used to do or do I have some settings wrong in the program?

I await a reply from anyone who can bring me up to speed. Kerry56 or Deanwitty, what say you?

DVDFab certainly has this capability if you choose to use it. It wouldn’t be my first choice for compression however.

You should be able to do straight rips without compression with DVDFab.

On checking the settings for BLU-ray I found it was set for “Enable Full Scan(Slow but Accurate)”, also Encoding settings were set at “Slow Speed(High Quality”). That explains it, I never thought to check . When I downloaded the last 2 Versions, the settings were this way. I reverted them back by taking the check mark off “Enable Full Scan” and the Encoding Setting to “Fast Speed(Normal Quality)”.

I assume U still feel that the BDREBUILDER program combined with the other 3 works the best for the finished product when “Compression” is needed for a BD-25 disc.

Thank you again for your valued comments.

Are you working with the “Blu-ray copy” function in Fab? You can control whether the full movie or movie only function rips the disc at full size or shrinks it to fit a 25GB BD-R with the little drop-down box that lets you choose BD25 or BD50. If you wish to see if Fab can save you some time with re-encoding to 25GB size and give you quality that is acceptable to you, choose “Software” in the video encoder setting and enable “lightning recode”.

Compare the results with a BDRB re-encode.

This is the blind leading the sighted since I haven’t done any blu-ray.
I think the “Enable Full Scan(Slow but Accurate)” would be better checked .
Encoding settings set at “Slow Speed(High Quality”) unchecked .
Since if the rip is uncompressed there would be no encoding.
Then Select the BD50 as dean posted above.
That should get you a full size uncompressed rip .
With full movie or movie only .
